    If you are studying graphic design in college you need to find the funds to get the right tools, the software and the color guides. You have to take seriously your education, no shortcuts....

          You will need matte board and a matte cutter. two fairly expensive items, that if you do not have your work will end up looking crappy. And if you buy a cheep matte cutter your work will end up looking like pooooo!

          I would just take it somewhere and have it mounted or invest ($300-500) in a matte cutting system and learn to do it well, it will take some practice!

          good luck

            dang that sucks. See in my high school the teacher thought us how to do it,but of course we were using the schools materials and equipment.

            I still would like to learn,but for now.....I think I'll take it some where else
